DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Tea party darling U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is logging some serious face-time in Iowa. And he's doing it before most other potential 2016 White House hopefuls.

Texas' freshman senator will be in Iowa on Tuesday, marking his fourth trip in eight months to the state that kicks off presidential voting. That's more Iowa trips than any other possible presidential contender except for fellow tea party-backed U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky.

Cruz is scheduled to keynote a Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators' event in Des Moines before heading to Mason City for a GOP fundraiser.

Many home school advocates are politically active. Their support helped former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee win the Iowa caucuses in 2008 and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania win them in 2012.
